A wave of labor organization is moving across the country, and higher education is bracing for impact. From large universities to small colleges, undergraduate to graduate schools, public and private, students are feeling the power of unionization.

Join us for a discussion of the unionization of Grinnell College, who, in 2016 became one of the first colleges to have an undergraduate student union. Learn about the transition from a Dining Services only union to the first Wall to Wall undergraduate union in the country. Hear about the challenges, the process that was followed, the bargaining of an initial contract, and finally the ratification of an agreement. And bring your questions, we'll try to provide answers!
